John Chriss

How do you distinguish a real estate advisor from an everyday realtor? An advisor is not a sales person but rather a competent purveyor of information who possesses a fiduciary responsibility to his/her client. John Chriss epitomizes this role.

After spending his youth traveling the world for the film industry (living in Seville, Sydney, and Los Angeles, among other places) his exposure to beautiful architecture, the coast, and his heritage drew him to real estate. Additionally, John says, "Growing up in South Texas, my father would watch movies with me on Saturday and my mother would drive me to open houses on Sunday. Real estate has been a part of my life since birth."

A comparatively eclectic background has afforded John a global client base, ranging from "A-list" Hollywood actors to ranchers in West Texas. Any of your real estate needs can be handled by John - anywhere in the world.

After spending three fruitful years with JB Goodwin Realtors in Austin where he consistently was in the "Million Dollar Club," John has taken his talents to the internationally renowned Engel & Völkers (formally Turnquist Partners.)

Engel & Völkers has more than 600 offices worldwide including the Austin Domain office which John co-manages and over 90 in North America alone. If you are looking to buy, sell/lease an investment property, home, jet or yacht John can facilitate your needs with world-class service.

Client Testimonial

"John Chriss was great to work with and all the while keeping his seller's fiduciary responsibility in mind - he always kept the spirit of the deal alive and made a successful transaction happen for both sides. He knows Central Austin very well!"

Chester- Greater Austin Home Builders

"As an owner of investment properties in Austin and having John Chriss as my agent I am very impressed with John and his abilities in selling my properties. I gave him a difficult task in that I wanted to sell all of them in a single transaction entailing multiple properties, he was most successful in doing so and represented my interest to the fullest! I have recommended him to others in both considering as well as acquiring properties in the Austin area."

Robert- Private Investor

"John, your assistance in purchasing our lot in Piney Point Village, Houston was awesome! Your perseverance and level of professionalism made the transaction pleasant and fun! We will certainly contact you when we are ready to list our current home. Thanks again."

Clay and Grace- Homesite buyers

"John was a fantastic help in our apartment search. Being relatively new to Austin with a number of strong preferences for an apartment, we felt lost until a friend recommended John. He took so much of the burden off of us and helped us to find just what we wanted. We would definitely work with John again!"

Jack and Jen- Apartment renters

"John Chriss was a great realtor, he helped me find the right house within my budget on a quick timeline. He is very knowledgeable about the housing market in Austin , Texas and the surrounding areas. He was able to answer all of my questions in a timely manner and would get back to me quickly if he didn’t know the answer I was looking for. He helped me switch lenders to a firm based in Austin, TX that was able to give me a better interest rate and helped me close when I needed to. I would recommend John Chriss to any of my family and friends that are in the market for a new house or just wanting to change the lease they are currently at."
